The evening of 18 February 2017 saw numerous children armed with little bags and boards making their way eagerly to the club. Purposeful in their strides, the children knew this would be a memorable day for them. They were eager to share with us their wonderful writing and art skills. Special mention to the Basketball coaching kids, they came in large numbers!
Tables and chairs were laid out for our little artists and writers. Once registrations were over and announcements made, the children had the floor to themselves. One would have thought that having 55 children together would be a noisy affair, but these children meant business as they started working on their masterpieces.
Careful selection of age-wise topics for the art and creative writing competitions meant they çould demonstrate their talents in the best possible way.
Time flew as little writers and artists worked on showing the world their talents. One hour later we had 55 masterpieces and our esteemed judges - Kalpita Sarkar, writer and Academic Manager at British Council, for creative writing, and Sanjib Sen, skillful artist, for the art competition, had a tough time choosing the winners.
